I hope you don't mind me saying, but I liked the BEFORE better! Laughing

I liked the fern and moss over growing the drift wood. IMO, the before picture w/ some marsilea sp. covering the remaining substrate, and you would have a stunning tank!

Looks great as is though, are you planning to plant more ground cover?

thanks for sharing,

Matt

No stocking plants right now, maybe cherry shrimp, yeah I'm still planning to put some plants, especially at the front, thinking of Hairgrass or glosso.

Maybe I'm a little tired of Java moss on driftwood, but I did like the second one better. I think the aquascape would benefit from some rocks along the gravel/mound border...

Nice tank. I personally prefer the first original setup, but well thats personal Smile

Like Marcos stated, some rocks would make it complete. And maybe, but thats personal again *smile* I would have choosen dark (black) substrate.

But again, a lovely tank. Wish I was as good as you in aquascaping!

I have to agree, the before looks more wild and natural.

While I do like the "Before" shot, I think I like the second one better. The first one is "wild and natural" but the second seems a little closer to a complete nature tank. I like the variation and texture that you brought into the tank. Either way, both tanks are very well done and interesting to look at.

By the way, what kind of wood did you use in the second picture?

The Woods are Manzanita Driftwoods.

Hi. I really like the second one best (without the moss) and would like to do something along the same lines in my 10g w/ sand and cories, making an island with the manzanita perhaps instead of driftwood. Where did you find it and did you have to treat it in anyway special either to make it nontoxic or so it would not float. The only manzanita I see out here (Georgia) is used for bird perches etc.. I love the gentle look of it... and would love to find a source for it and know how to treat it.. Good luck with the beautiful tank.
